BALTIMORE (AP) After the faithful fans showered Manny Machado with cheers and love, the former Baltimore star made himself right at home - again - at Camden Yards.

Machado marked his return with a performance reminiscent of his time with the Orioles, hitting a long homer and driving in two runs to help the San Diego Padres roll to an 8-3 victory on Tuesday night.

Machado played seven years with the Orioles before being traded last July, months before becoming a free agent. The third baseman signed a 10-year, $300 million contract with the Padres in February.

This is about Tampa Bay keeping its hometown team and Montreal having one, too. I believe strongly in the sister-city concept. We're asking for open minds."
